  • The Black Alumni Scholarship Fund Campaign

    Some students are forced to drop out of college because they are unable to pay tuition and fees.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of Black Awareness Month on February 29, 2016. You can make your own impact on our community by making a donation today.
